Once again, Bob has been working his magic in the garage. He bought this rocking chair at a yard sale for $5, which was probably too much for its condition. At one time, it had been painted, but must have set outside for years losing its seat in the process.

With a little sanding, glue, stain, finish and a new cane seat; it is now off to the consignment shop and, hopefully, a new owner! It's kind of cute, don't you think?

I'm going to take a blogging break. For a week now I have been trying to recover from what our family calls "The Crud" - you know: the horrendous cough and runny nose disease. I've been to the Dr. today, had a breathing treatment, and loaded up with medicine; and am now ready for a break.

Hope you are enjoying your summer. I'll be back!

Hope you'll be breathing easier and healthy soon. Everyone around here just has allergies as more things bloom and grow with all the rain we had last week.

The chair is amazing-your husband is very talented! Thanks so much for sharing the before/after! ♥♫
